Kia Ora and Haere Mai (Welcome) to Queenstown!
This city is a backpacker's dream come true. A place packed with local cheap hostels, cool bars, and clubs, neat boutiques and shops where you can get the best sports equipment and hiking gear. By many, it's considered to be the final frontier and world capital for adventure and adrenaline-filled activities.
In the winter period, Queenstown becomes the main hub for seasonal skiers, coming from all parts of NZ and the world, while during the summer it becomes a center for heart-pounding activities such as bungy jumping, skydiving, river-speed-boating, zip-lining and much, much more.
The city is also used as a gateway to access its nearby enchanting, surreal and untouched natural destinations, such as the Milford Sound (the Seventh Wonder of the World), the region of Fjordlands, the South Island lakes, and the Remarkables (a great skiing destination and the location for a hiking trail that leads to the Instagram-famous Roys Peak).
However, Queenstown doesn't stop here. Visitors can also expect sound dining experiences, jaw-dropping scenery, and peaceful city-center vibes, where they can take a breather from the dare-filled hyperactive side.
